I love you. I love writing you and finding pictures that match you. I like to share you and respond to comments from your readers. You are so much a part of me; good and bad, light and dark, brave and foolish.
But Summer has arrived stealing my time. Important things need attention that you just don’t allow.
My book wants to be written.
My kids need more care.
Magazine articles are begging to be finished and I’ve left them hanging.
Maine is coming and you know how that goes; busy, busy, busy, all the time busy.
I’m going to have to let you rest for a while. It’s not easy, but I must prioritize.
I’ll miss seeing your daily bar graph and images of the countries that inhabit the people who read you.
I’ll have to shake the habit of sitting to express every bloggy thought. I must focus my writing in other areas; quiet places that don’t offer as much support and connectedness to like-minded individuals, but in the long run will bring me closer to the goals that my spirit needs to grow bigger wings.
I hope you are not forgotten.
I won’t forget you or the people I’ve shared you with.
I’ll be back now and then. I can’t abandon you completely. Where else could I write my thoughts about 50 Shades and how I figured out the formula and why it works and what it means to marriage.
See that? See how every thought has the potential to turn into a blog post and then I write and edit and publish and the day is gone and the kids are hungry and the articles sit quiet and the book remains a paragraph waiting here in Mommyland’s archives? I’ve got to step back and think for a while without using you.
It’s not you. It’s me.
It’s not “Goodbye,” it’s, “See you soon!”
You’ve changed my world and helped me grow.
Thank you. Thank you.
Sincerely and with the most love,
